I have been seeing Karen Holmes for 17 years and she has always been so caring and informative. Karen had me skip my last shot because I was not in any pain. Karen will try to fix the problem if there is one. I really appreciate Karen and the staff she works with.

Karen Holmes is a true asset to Baylor Scott and White. A consummate professional, experienced and knowledgeable, she is also skilled in her techniques which makes an uncomfortable procedure almost painless. Additionally, she is a delightful and witty person who is always willing to discuss any issues I might have concerning my knees and how arthritis is affecting my joints. I look forward to my interactions with her.

I came at the wrong time when she was leaving for vacation which has made follow up and treatment to be delayed. But that is just circumstantial bad timing. All in all everything was very good.
